A sharp-eyed car enthusiast has filmed a 2022 GMC Hummer EV on manufacturer plates rolling down Woodward Avenue in Metro Detroit, giving us a better idea of just how large the battery-electric pickup is in comparison to other vehicles.
This video was uploaded to YouTube by a user with the account name Sinister Coyote 5.0 last week. The footage shows a pre-production version of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 rolling down Woodward Avenue with what is most likely a General Motors employee behind the wheel. While we’ve already covered the Hummer EV extensively, this video gives us a much better feel for the GMC Hummer EV’s large size and commanding road presence.
The driver in this case also appears to have the Extract Mode enabled, as the suspension on this prototype is sitting much higher than it is in most of the official press images. As a result, the Hummer EV is towering above most of the traffic around it.
The GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 is set to enter production at the GM Factory Zero plant in Hamtramck, Michigan later this year. With the production start date still some months away, it’s no surprise that passersby seem excited to spot the Hummer on the road well ahead of its official arrival. This prototype also appears more complete than other examples that have been spotted on public roads, featuring full body cladding, production wheels and tires and production LED headlights and taillights. The off-road test prototypes spotted in Salt Lake City for example, did not feature body cladding and were missing other parts and components.
Pricing for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 starts at $112,595. The First Edition models have already been sold out, although customers can still pre-order the lesser EV3X, EV2X and EV2 trim level models.
